  • To make a Zen Press you also have to make the Lemongrass Syrup. Here's a recipe....

    Lemongrass Syrup

    1 cup sugar

    1 cup water

    1 stalk lemongrass (readily found at Asian Markets)

    * Place sugar and water into a small pan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until the sugar crystals have dissolved.

    * Slice the pale, fleshy base of lemon grass into small rounds and add to the sugar and water mixture.

    * Let the syrup cool for at least 30 minutes, or longer for stronger flavoring.

    * Strain.
